Satin Sheets is the second studio album released by American country artist Jeanne Pruett. The album was released in June 1973 on MCA Records and was produced by Walter Haynes. The album contained Pruett's first major hit and signature song of the same name as the album. The single reached number one on the Billboard Country Chart. The album was released in late spring 1973.

Background and content[edit]

Satin Sheets contained ten tracks of newly recorded material. The album was recorded in three separate sessions at Bradley's Barn Studio in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. The first session took place in December 1972, which recorded the title track and "Sweet Sweetheart". In January 1973, "Ive Been Wrong for So Long" and "Lonely Women Cryin" were recorded. The final songs were recorded in a session that took place in April 1973.[1] Most of the songs on the album were aimed more towards a Traditional country style, unlike the conventional Nashville Sound musical style used at the time on most country music sessions. This was seen particularly on songs such as the title track and "Walking Piece of Heaven". Many of the songs consisted of themes about passion and romance, including the title track, "Is Her Love Any Better Than Mine" (the third track), and "Your Memory's Comin' On" (the final track). Most of the album's tracks were ballads including the seventh track "What My Thoughts Do All the Time". The album was later reviewed by Allmusic which gave it three out of five stars.[2]

Satin Sheets was originally released as a LP record which contained six songs on the A-side of the record and five songs on the B-side of the record. The album has never been reissued on compact disc.[3]

Release[edit]

Satin Sheets' name derived from the album's title track, which was the lead single and only single released from the album. The single released in February 1973, becoming Pruett's first major hit, peaking at number one on the Billboard Magazine Hot Country Singles chart the week of May 23 and number 28 on the Billboard Hot 100 shortly afterward.[4] The single later returned to number one on the country chart the week of June 23. In addition, it also peaked at number three on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks chart and number seventy six on the RPM Top Singles Chart. Satin Sheets was released around the same time its single became a major hit. The album peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Magazine Top Country Albums chart and number 122 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.[5] Satin Sheets spent eight weeks at number one on the Top Country Albums, becoming the second-longest running album on the chart by a female artist.[6]
